Birmingham City have had a difficult season so far in the Championship, and they currently find themselves 18th in the table, having only won seven matches.
The Blues were comfortably defeated by Blackburn Rovers in their final game of 2021, but they were unable to respond when they faced Queen’s Park Rangers last weekend.
Despite a goal from Chuks Aneke, it was not enough to claw his team back into the game as they lost 2-1, which is why they will now be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday.
This match will actually be the first time Birmingham and Plymouth have ever met in the FA Cup, making this a historic encounter no matter what happens.
The Blues will also take confidence from the fact they have knocked out their opposition in lower leagues than them 13 out of the last 14 times they have faced them.
Lee Bowyer will be without Matija Sarkic on Saturday and for the remainder of the season as he is set for surgery on a dislocated shoulder, meaning a change of goalkeeper will be needed.
Aneke will want a place in the starting lineup this weekend as well after he came off the bench to score in Birmingham’s most recent match.
Meanwhile, it is unknown when Marc Roberts and Jordan Graham will be available again, with both men currently on the sidelines due to hamstring issues.
Plymouth’s George Cooper missed out on Boxing Day with a knee injury, and that area has swollen and been an issue, but he is expected to be an option at the weekend.
However, Brendan Galloway is not expected to overcome his problem in the same area, which has kept him out of the team since November.
